Food plots vs baiting

Why aren't food plots considered baiting?

You can shear a sheep many times, but you can only skin it once.

Because they don't bring a critter to a specific spot, like a pile of corn would.

If they were baiting, then the PGC wouldn't be allowed to plant food plots on the SGL's.

Planting an apple tree would/could be considered baiting.

Re: Food plots vs baiting

I still think its the same concept. I don't care if corn comes off an ear or out of a bag, its still corn. same as whatever else is planted for a plot. its put there to entice the deer to come.

I didn't really mean the big food plots of a bunch of acres. What I was wondering was this...I was reading an article in a hunting magazine (don't remember which one) that said the author picked out a spot for his stand and then took some Sew and Grow and made a small 10' x 10' food plot near his stand. This helped bring feeding deer into bow range. Just wondering if that was legal in PA or not.

- In place of Rolls Eyes!

PERFECTLY Legal!!

Place the SEEDs, the Seeds Germinate, Grow Roots, Push Stems and Leaves up out of the Ground... Stems and Leaves Gather Light, Produce Fruit, seeds, what ever the plant was intended to produce..

PERFECTLY Legal!


Place it they will come (Great Big Ole Pile of Corn, Apples, Pears, Turnip Tops, Peanuts, pop corn and Cracker Jacks)- Illegal!

Plant it they Will Come (seeds, grow into plants and fruit and drop thier fruits or seeds to be eaten by the Critters)- Legal! Don't matter if it is 3 foot Square, 1,000 ACRES Square!



Why can not guys under stand.. Put a SEED in the Ground, Seed Germinates, Pushs up out of the Ground, Grows Stem, Leaves and then Fruit or seed pods and the Critters eat it and it is Perfectly LEGAL?????


Is it that Hard to understand Planting, Seed Germinates and so forth is Perfectly LEGAL and has no matter what size footage, acre or miless it is???


BUT, if you plant those seeds, let them grow, then Harvest the off come of the seeds into a Bucket, Bushel Basket, Sack and Transport it to another place or even 1 foot away onto Piles, it is NOT Legal!


Is it that Hard to understand???

It was correct and to the point, but it did not explain why. That is why it was a waste of my time. It didn't accomplish anything. If "because the law says so" were everyones answer to a question in this forum, we wouldn't need the forum. Explain why, not just because it says so.

Is it that hard to explain without being sarcastic? It was never explained to me and does not explain the difference in the law book (that I could find). If I plant a small food plot and HAVE NO INTENTIONS OF HARVESTING IT, than why is it not baiting? Seeds, germinations, blah, blah, blah. It is no different. The main intention was to lure game.

The land I hunt was logged off 2 years ago. This winter I'm going to go and clear off 6 spots all over the property that now get sunlight. There is no way I can get harvesting equipment into them because of the terrain. I'm going to plant them all with different types of food plots (clover, turnips, etc.) I might even plant a few rows of corn in one or two of them. Then, I'm going to plant 6 or 7 apple trees in each one of them. Then, I'm going to build a treestand at each one and put up trail cameras and take pics of what I see. Finally, I'm going to hunt over them and you're going to tell me that isn't baiting?
